Phytohormone-Receptors from Tobacco Crown Gall Tissues
Plant cell and tissue cultures are useful tools for the study of plant hormone receptors as it is clearly illustrated by the work of the ‘Leiden-group’ on different aspects of auxin binding in tobacco callus tissue. In this contribution we will review some physiological and genetical aspects of the tobacco crown gall system, illustrating not only the possibilities offered by this model to investigate the early mode of action of phytohormones, but also the necessity to integrate the study of plant hormone receptors as an essential complementation of data on the endogenous phytohormonal levels.
